Fox just made a monster pickup: The broadcast network has picked up drama “The Frankenstein Code” to series, which hails from sister studio Twentieth Century.

The show follows Jimmy Pritchard (Rob Kazinsky), a morally corrupt retired cop, is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Pritchard will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose.

Rand Ravich penned the pilot, earning an executive producer title as well. Michael Cuesta directs and exec produces. Howard Gordon also picks up an executive producer credit.

In addition to Kazinsky, “The Frankenstein Code” stars Dilshad Vadsaria as Mary, Adhir Kalyan as Otto, Tim DeKay as Duval Pritchard and Ciara Bravo as Gracie Pritchard.

Also on Friday, Fox renewed “Bones” for Season 11. A day earlier, the network ordered John Stamos’s comedy “Grandfathered” and Gail Berman‘s “Guide to Surviving Life.” Rob Lowe sitcom “The Grinder” and investigative drama “Rosewood” were also picked up on Thursday.

“The Mindy Project” was canceled the prior day.
